Psalm 46

God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
Therefore we do not fear, though the
earth give way
and the mountains fall into the
heart of the sea,
though the waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their
surging.
There is a river whose streams make
glad the city of God,
the holy place where the Most High
dwells.
God is within her, she will not fall;
God will help her at break of day.
Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall;
he lifts his voice, the earth melts
The Lord Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.
Come and see the works of the Lord,
the desolations he has brought
on the earth.
He makes wars cease to the ends of
the earth;
he breaks the bow and shatters the
spear,
he burns the shields with fire.
"Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth."
The Lord Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.
